If there’s no place like home, there’s certainly no business like making sure a community living space is a comforting, safe, well-run environment for those who dwell within. At GKWW, we’ve earned a sterling reputation as the strong, proactive arm of the property manager at condominium and townhome associations.
Our firm is incredibly well-organized and systematic. Once an association sets a schedule for the collection of past due assessments, we send 30-day letters and file complaints consistent precisely according to that schedule. Delay only hurts collections; we are never the cause of that delay. In fact, we docket not only dates consistent with the association’s policies, but also dates requiring input from the property manager (for example, ledgers required for court) or responses when a unit owner proposes a payment plan. In court, we push the court to move cases along to get a ruling from the judge rather than a continuance.
On the bigger association policy issues, we pride ourselves on quick, thorough, effective responses to issues. Our extensive association client base assures that we have considered many common questions before and don’t have to reinvent the wheel.
Gardiner Koch Weisberg & Wrona helps keep our dozens of client communities in order, putting to use a wealth of expertise in condominium and homeowners’ associations law. These associations–which range from small self-managed associations to very large associations–are generally located in the Chicago metropolitan area, so our expertise in local particulars is non pareil. We engage with virtually all governance, dispute, and litigation matters involving associations, and the breadth of this practice allows GKWW to deliver excellent service in the great variety of matters that confront associations.
We represent community associations, advising clients regarding statutory compliance, rule enforcement, board and management company changes, membership, elections, and votes on controversial matters. We handle transitions between developers and association boards. We prepare contracts; we draw up resolutions; we record documents. We handle all litigation matters for the associations that we represent, such as: collection against members who are not current, contract actions against vendors who fail to meet their obligations and disputes between property managers and the board.
If your association could use a strong team member to move its daily mountains, we invite you to contact Gardiner Koch Weisberg & Wrona to set up a meeting in our offices.
